In the fin ace Ilmari Juutilainens book"Double fighter knight" page 203-4( eng. verson) is described an episode
where the windshield of his 109g6 (june1944) gets
splattered by oil from a La-5.
" I pulled aside and cleaned the windshield by turning a little knob wich showered gasoline on the glass.The airstream took care of the rest.

WE SOOOOOOO NEED THIS! I can't count the number of times I have had my windscreen splattered with my own oil! Dogfighting is difficult but landing is impossible with the blocked view!

A good landing that is! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Please post in the Oleg Ready Room. Maybe it can make the patch!

somehow I think that

A: this wasn't of widespread use and
B: Oleg is not going to model it.

shall be judged: and with what
measure ye mete, it shall be
measured to you again.
